Since the time of the Roman Empire, Ston has possessed one of the most important salt factories in the Mediterranean region and in ancient times the inhabitants build stone walls all around their town and all the way to the neighboring village, Mali Ston, to protect it.

Here you will take a boat ride with a local oyster farmer to see how shells are being cleaned and farmed and help harvest your own lunch. On the island Ostrog your host will serve fresh oysters and prepare local dish of mussels called “buzara”, all spiced with myrtle brandy and home-made wine.

After lunch you will return to Ston for a short tour of the town, visit town’s treasury, its salt pans and the “Great Wall” before leaving the coast to drive along the elevated road that Napoleon Bonaparte built on his way to conquer Dubrovnik in 1806. This little-known route passes through several tiny villages and provides the best panoramic view of the Dubrovnik Riviera and Elaphiti Islands.
